Ordered on tap at the Wynkoop Brewery in Denver. Usually I'm not a fan of chili beers, although this one worked for me. Poured a pale yellow with a greenish tint. Slightly cloudy. Very small bubbles of carbonation. White head. As expected, the smell and taste of green chilis dominated. Hard to taste the malt or hops in it. The chilis lingered a bit, although they weren't overly hot - they didn't affect the mouthfeel at all. Although the strong chili flavor made for tough drinkability. Their take on the style seemed good, although I personally don't reach for chili beers.

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

Ordered one of these at Wynkoop as it was on Westword's 50 Colorado Beers to Try Before you Die List.

A - The beer arrived a vivid golden color with a thin white head and noticeable lacing.

S - Imagine you're at a Farmer's Market right next to the guy roasting the chili's. Immense chili aroma that's so potent you can't get anything else through.

T/M - The beer starts out light and crisp with a light malty character but quickly transitions to the chili flavor. It's not a spicy jalapenos flavor more of a roasted chili. The beer finishes crisp and smooth with the chili flavor lingering. It is not overly carbonated and is surprisingly light.

D - I was very excited about the beer at the beginning of the pint, towards the end I was ready for it to go away.

Overall, I am glad to have tried it as it's one of only a handful of chili beers I've had. However, I won't be going back for another.

Serving type: on-tap

3.23/5  rDev -6.9%

A: clear amber/golden, half finger head

S: chili pepper but light

T: malt and chili pepper mix throughout the experience

M: oily, medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: interesting how many of their beers look alike. This one is a little over powering with the chili, not too many other flavors outside of chili pepper.

12 oz can. Pours hazy golden yellow with a medium frothy white head that goes to a thin film and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is fresh chile peppers (Anaheim?).

The flavor is some sweet malts with chile flavor. It's got a little heat but is pretty mild. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a solid mild chile beer. Good flavor, but not a lot of heat.

Interestingly enough, this may have been my favorite sampling at the brewery during my GABF '08 visit. The beer begins with a fairly average Blonde Ale base that shows soft pilsner maltiness / sweetness, and a mild ester profile. The peppers are the mild Aneheim ones that deliver a crisp vegitable-chile taste that blends well with the grains. The heat is mild, giving balance to the malts in the absence of noticible hops. Light in the body, which makes the beer very drinkable. Finishes with a chili taste and moderate warming. Quite nice.
